TD Announces Creation Of More Than 275 Positions

Some good news on the job front for a change and in the beleaguered call centre industry.

Mayor Mel Norton, Premier David Alward and former Premier Frank McKenna announcing 275 jobs over the next three years at the TD Insurance call centre on Rothesay Avenue. More than 120 positions have already been posted on the TD website. Alward says the insurance sector in the province is a significant economic driver.

The expansion will contribute about $40 million annually to the province's gross domestic product when all the jobs are filled.

Iron Mountain and ExxonMobil both announcing the closure of their city call centres in the Loch Lomond Mall next year. ExxonMobil is moving its operations to Moncton and some of the Saint John workers may be transferred.
